Restorative Dentistry


Restorative Dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures. It covers functional and aesthetic rehabilitation, encompassing endodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics. More importantly, it considers how these specialist fields interact in cases requiring multifaceted care.

In the UK, restorative dentistry is legally recognised as a specialty under EU directive, with voices from the British Society for Restorative Dentistry and the Association of Consultants & Specialists in Restorative Dentistry.

Restorative Dentistry, always an important aspect of quality dental care, was recognised as a speciality in the UK since 1973. At that time, the Joint Committee for Higher Training in Dentistry (JCHTD) obtained recognition of Restorative Dentistry as the third hospital dental speciality from the Department of Health and Social Security (now part of the Department for Work and Pensions).
